In this class we look at gracenote execution from the standpoint of understanding exactly what our fingers are doing as we play them. We use simple exercises to help us perfect the size and cleanliness of the gracenotes, and pair that with a demonstration in super slow motion of how some of the note transitions should look and in what order the fingers should move.
